Tea is an international symbol of friendship and hospitality. . .
Sweet Tea embodies Southern hospitality.
Hey, I'm Tammy Eichholz Akard (aka Sweet T.E.A.). I have always loved making movies, and this love of the camera led me to pursue a career in TV news. While working as a sports reporter/anchor, I had the opportunity to cover events such as NFL games, SEC sports, and NASCAR.
My favorite part of being a reporter was telling the story, and as a wedding filmmaker, that's still my favorite part. I am a hopeless romantic, so I love weddings! After experiencing the whirlwind of my own wedding, I realized how much I didn't personally get to see of the very day I had spent so much time planning.
Considering my experience with video production and editing, my love for weddings, and my desire to help other brides preserve all the special details of their big day, it seemed only natural for me to fall into filming weddings—and this quickly became a passion for me.
I am the primary filmmaker and editor, and my husband, Keith, joins me at weddings as a secondary shooter. We are tremendously blessed with four beautiful children, and when I'm not filming or editing, I love to hang out with my family—and drink sweet tea!
“We truly enjoy what we do and take pride in our work.
The result is an outstanding product and an amazing one-on-one customer experience.”
I will give away one tenth of any earnings I receive from this business.
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
- Malachi 3:10
"I do not know if there are enough words to express how awesome and amazing Tammy and her husband are. First of all, let me say Sweet T.E.A Productions was by far the best and easiest decision I have ever made. I knew right when I got engaged that I wanted Tammy to film our big day. She was actually the very first thing I booked in regards to my wedding. The video that I received was my own real "Notebook" movie. It made you cry, made you laugh, and filled you with so much happiness and joy that you could burst (Everything you want in a movie). It captured my husband and I perfectly and our relationship together, it also caught precious moments you would easily miss or never would notice in every day life. It truly leaves you in awe and makes you appreciate such a huge and special day in your life that you can go back and watch time and time again. Tammy gave us not only a video, but a special blessed gift that is irreplaceable. It is one that we can look back on until the end of time. Tammy is so talented, so easy to work with, sweet, and funny. The best advice I could give to future brides is look no further, and know this will be the best decision you will make that you will never have to second guess or question EVER!"
"To say our video turned out amazing is seriously an understatement. We were blown away!!! The quality is outstanding and Tammy was able to capture all of the best moments! You won't regret it!!"
"Sweet Tea Productions is beyond impressive! They were so easy to work with and really took our wedding video vision above and beyond what we expected! We were really specific on what we hoped the final production would look like, and they nailed it! They were fantastic with suggestions, and worked extremely well with our photographers and other vendors. I would highly recommend Tammy and Sweet Tea Productions to anyone hoping to capture their special day with a videographer. Impressed! Impressed! Impressed!"
"Truly the best investment of the entire wedding budget! I'm so glad that we have forever saved the sweet wedding memories. Tammy is the absolute best and captures the entire day. Better yet...I didn't even know she was there! What a gift she has for capturing special moments and connecting with people. The wedding day may be over, but we love re-living it through our video!"
"Tammy is professional and an amazing story-teller. She is caring and made me feel like a friend and not a client. The Sweet T.E.A. team made the most special memory from our wedding and we are so lucky to get to have it forever. Tammy is the type of person you want surrounding you on your wedding day. She is fun, helpful, and hard-working. I am so thankful for Tammy and the Sweet T.E.A family."
"I could not have asked for a better videographer. Tammy was so sweet, flexible, and enthusiastic about making our day the best possible. She was so personable and truly made you feel like she wanted to make this day perfect. I debated on whether to book a videographer (due to budget constraints) because I already had a photographer, but honestly I watch my video 10x more than I have looked at pictures. You can relive those moments of nervousness, excitement, and joy over and over with the video. She adds the perfect touch of songs and transitions to bring out those emotions. Not to mention she delivers a killer package with your finished product, that includes popcorn and theater themed goodies. Hands down my favorite vendor I had."
"Tammy's passion for telling stories and expertise in video production preserved ever special detail of my daughter's wedding. Watching the creative and beautifully mastered video is like reliving the day over and over. I am so thankful we chose Sweet Tea Productions and I highly recommend that you do too! BOOK NOW!"
